Really digging the pics of all the 6" SWB stuff. Jabba, Biker Scout, Chewie, and Vader all look fantastic.

Hasbro may not see an end to SWB in sight, but they must also not be seeing the tons and tons of Greedos, Slave Leias, and Hans that are clogging the shelves at Target and TRU, and are being sold on Amazon and BBTS for at or below retail price.

But whatevs, I'm along for the ride, however much longer it goes. I'm glad they're getting Chewie, Vader, and Jedi Luke done, at least.

I still don't know why Greedo is shelf warming, b/c he looks great. Han's not hanging around my stores, even the cock-eyed ones disappear in a day. Hopefully they make a Endor Leia to go with the speeder bike.

A few Greedo, but mostly Leia, R2D2, and X-wing Luke out here.

Definitely want Chewy and Vader. Hope a better Leia comes out down the line.

I still can't find a Han with decent eyes. Hasbro needs to get on the manufacturers in China to paint the faces (and especially the eyes) better.

That's weird, Boba Fett is one shelfwarming near me!

I haven't seen very much of Han at all, but there are too many Greedos and a few too many Leias. I remember back when the first Slave Leia came out, it was all the rage, but I guess horny Star Wars fans have had their fill!

This series got me back into buying SW figures, even though I'm more of a 3 3/4 fan usually. I guess just being something new appealed to me. I hope we get C-3PO and Lando before the line ends. Episode 4 Luke and Leia would be good.

And every single bounty hunter! They sell! Well, except those shelfwarming Fetts I mentioned earlier. ;)

Really disappointed with the open mouth on Chewie. Looks like orgasming Teen Wolf.

Well let me know what stores--- since no one in the DC Star Wars Collector Club can find them either... You must have a no mans land store near you.. I know someone who hits the Crystal City Target every day and hasn't seen a thing..

I was just kidding. He's a broogle to find here, too. I found him a couple times before Xmas at Target, and then a couple weeks ago at TRU when they just put out Series 2 for the first time. I bought the set from BBTS to save myself the trouble, but I really though by now he would start showing up a little more. Hasbro should make and all Fett case. (It's too bad that some many of these figures are being bought by scalpers making a HTF figure even H-er to F.)

Finally got a Han I can live with. All caught up on what I want from the first two waves.

Of course, wave three is about to hit, apparently. :lol:

Congrats on finding the elusive straight eyed Han. I remember finally finding one with a good head but horrible paint on the hands and shirt. Should have picked him up to make a storm trooper Han when wave 3 hits.

I'm in for the Speeder Bike and Scout set! Otherwise, I really like the figures but the price point is keeping me out.
